Welcome back to returning students and a warm welcome to first time Otago students.
New students: Most fortnights, you will receive an e-newsletter (scarfie.com) to your student email with official notifications as well as other news of interest from the University and your Students’ Association, OUSA. Items may also be displayed on the digital screens in the Link.
You can view a copy of scarfie and past editions here

COME AND HELP THEM SAVE LIVES; bring your student ID or other acceptable ID listed here
Where: Union Hall
When: Tuesday 24 July or 21 August 12-4.30pm
If you’ve been meaning to get involved, anytime is a good time to start volunteering! We have plenty of roles to suit nearly all interests and the UniCrew team can help you find the opportunity that suits you best. Gain valuable life and employability skills and give your brain a breather while doing something worthwhile.
Heading to the slopes this winter? Come into see us 4-7pm Tues – Fri for all your snow gear bookings and fittings. From boards to skis, jackets to helmets we’ll get you sorted at super student prices.
Skips will be available on 27 July, from 9am to 4pm so you can get rid of the stuff you can’t put in your black bags or recycling bins. If the skip located closest to your flat is full, please take your rubbish to another skip at these locations.
If you can, it’s probably best to get rid of your rubbish before 3.30pm, as skips taken away to be emptied towards the end of the collection period may not be replaced with a new skip.
By now you probably know all about the DCC rubbish collection service requirements but just take a minute to refresh your memory. Non-DCC rubbish bags will not be collected.
Thanks for your help keeping the campus tidy.
